Trailer for The Book Thief (2013)

The Book Thief Poster

The Book Thief (2013) (Click on the title for my full review.)

This movie is based off of the novel by Markus Zusak.  Liesel (Sophie Nelisse) is a young girl without a family in Nazi Germany during WWII.  She gets taken in and adopted by a couple who also hide a Jewish boy under their stairs.  With all of the terrible things going on around her, Liesel takes comfort in stealing books and sharing them with her new family.

The film was directed by Brian Percival and the rest of the noteworthy cast includes Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, Ben Schnetzer, Joachim Paul Assbock, Kirsten Block, and Sandra Nedeleff.

I have not read the book, but the movie looks like it could be pretty good.  It’s a story that I am not familiar with, but it looks intense.

The movie is set to release on 11/15/13.
